Babies can keep you on your toes throughout the day. But there is something more difficult than handling babies. It’s tackling stains on their clothes! If you want your baby's clothes to look and smell sweet and fresh, just as your little one, these tips will help you keep those baby clothes in perfect condition.
- Faeces stains: Remove all residue from nappy, for this, it’s the easiest to place it under running water. After this, soak the nappy in lukewarm water to completely remove faeces stains. No matter what detergent you use, removing these stains becomes very difficult if you do not soak the nappies beforehand. If the stain doesn’t go away with warm water, try soaking it in half a cup of vinegar.
- Baby Oil: After regular baby massages, baby oil stains are very common. For this, rub a small blob of dish soap directly onto the fabric. Then wash the stained area under warm water until the dish soap is gone. Next up, pre-treat the area with a suggested laundry stain remover before tossing the garment in the wash on the hottest setting possible.
- Mud stains: Rinse stain right away with cool water. Put a small amount of liquid detergent on the stain, rub in gently and leave for at least half an hour. Rinse this out in cold water, and put more liquid detergent on, after which put it in the washing machine and wash as normal. The sooner you can act the better, as dried stains are harder to get out.
- Formula Milk: To get rid of formula milk stains, firstly remove the stain as much as possible with a stiff brush. Then lay the clothing in a sink or tub. Sprinkle the entire stain with baking soda. Pour some drinking soda or sparkling water over the stain. This will make the baking soda fizz. Allow it to sit and fizzle until the bubbling stops. Wash normally with detergent and warm water.
Now with these hacks, you no longer have to worry about stains on your baby’s clothes. But always keep in mind, nothing treats a stain as well as immediate action.
